My husband had to go to Asheville for business during a weekend in January. I searched for something to do inside, since it was going to be cold, with my twin boys while my husband had to work. I am so happy I found this place. We played here for 5 hours and the boys and myself did not want... More

Our 3 year old loved it. Especially the dress up jackets. So much to do, plan to be there a while. Very clean too.

I took a child I was baby sitting and they had the best time. I even enjoyed watching them play. The child was 2 years old and it was a great place for them to run and play. They had a section gated off so they could run and play but not get away from you. The price was kinda... More

This is a great indoor playground and jungle gym when it's cold outside. The place is relatively clean considering the amount of kids who come to play, even the bathroom! We went when they first opened at 10am and I recommend doing so as when we left at noon, there was a line to get in and this was on... More

I've taken the kids here twice over two years, and it has been a hit both times, first for a six-year-old girl and ten-year-old boy, now for an eight-year-old girl and twelve-year-old boy. I do wish that they made a point of rotating the play equipment in and out a little better: the stuff that's there is exactly what was... More

I took my 3 year old son and he had a great time! He climbed on everything and ran around for about 2 hours before he finally got bored. It was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Loved the local snacks, but the selection was a tad pricey. Admission was only $12, which really isn't bad for how much of a blast... More

Delightful areas for creative play. So many different areas so the children are not crowded and continually move about. Works best for kids 6 and under. Not equipped for older ones. Great for a rainy or cold afternoon

Kids had a great time. All sorts of climbing gyms, slides, castles and stuff. Parents have clear line of site and lots of seats, Starbucks coffee, and snacks. Great spot.

The kids love playing here when we are passing through the area. They were 4 years old last time and 6 years old this time. We got there 2 hours before closing, and 2 hours was plenty of time to wear them out. They had a blast! The place offers free wifi and some tvs around. Don't forget your socks!

My kids (5,7) love coming here. It's great especially for rainy days or cold weather when the kids have to be inside anyways. It's always clean and the kids always wear themselves out. They love all of the slides and inflatables!
